Are you interested in replacing a missing tooth with dental implants? Even though dental implants are artificial, they often last much longer than standard teeth and in many cases, will last a lifetime of heavy wear and tear.

Dental implants work by attaching themselves directly into your jawbone. Due to this process, all patients are required to have an adequate jaw strength for this treatment to work. Speak with your dentist to determine if your jaw can sustain dental implants. After they are installed, the bond between the implant and bone will grow stronger over time, due to a procedure is known as osseointegration.

If your jaw has several missing teeth, it will begin to weaken and deteriorate over time. Implants can help restore the jaw to its original strength and keep it running properly. Dental implants can even be intended to look and act just like your natural teeth. This will make your smile look better, and function better for everyday jobs such as eating, chewing, and speaking.
